Water heater bypass

Does anyone know if the Georgetown 377 has a bypass valve on the water heater and how to access? I am learning how to winterized this rig? Also, any tips on winterizing the ice maker? I found a bypass near the water basement, not sure what it is for.

Locate your water heater access panel outside coach, then look underneath coach for a access plug. Remove and reach inside for all the water heater valves.

I can understand you wanting to get a handle on things, but geez, summer is just starting and you're talking about "winterizing", yikes! LOL!

forgot to mention, look under your rig where the water heater is and you should see the access port to the by pass. You'll need a flash light to look up, there should be 3 valves to turn.

Same round access cover, but on my Georgetown it is located on the side of the water heater compartment, facing the rear tire.

Headed overseas for 2 years and putting the rig in storage. Crazy, I know.

Are you going to just blow it out with air or add antifreeze as well?

I ask because two years is a long time for the AF to sit in your pipes and what not.
